    Hey guys,
    I am going to purchase the Redmax 8001 tomorrow for $499.00, I think its the right one for me. I do allot of spring cleanups and fall cleanups and right now i have managed with my old mower 48" Scag with a bagger and a hand held echo blower. I have read good things about it and i hope that it will do me good and save time.
    Any comments are appreciated, I will post pics when i get it.

    Great blower and wow @ that price. I can only sell the husky equivalent for $529 and when the redmax dist. approached us about the line they wanted us to sell the 8001 for $549 as their promo price. Needless to say we said no cause it would have been higher priced to the customer and lower margin for us so a lose lose for both the customer and the dealer,.

    For Zooropa----NO DISTR can tell you what to price your product for. if you want to stand out in teh middle of teh street and give them away thats your choice--they can't legally even talk about selling price--they can only talk about what you pay them.
